‘Aging is much more of a choice than people ever dream. One of modern medicine’s great breakthroughs is a realization that the body is not an object, but a process with no preordained limits.’
The interaction between mind and body processes has become one of the most exciting and revolutionary areas of medical research. Few people are better qualified than Deepak Chopra to explain how we can engage with the limitless potential of mind/body wisdom so as to realize our lives as fully as possible. A world-class pioneer in mind/body medicine, and an acclaimed exponent of the significance of the ancient Hindu teachings of Ayurveda, which parallel the insights of contemporary research on quantum physics in stating that our attitude to ourselves can change the way things are, Deepak Chopra here shows us the extent to which the reshaping of the aging process is within our control.
In a book which combines lucid theory with inspiring case studies – one of Dr Chopra’s eighty-year-old patients has remarked: ‘People don’t grow old. When they stop growing, they become old’ – and with a wealth of practical exercises through which to translate theory into practice, Ageless Body, Timeless Mind demonstrates clearly and convincingly the innate intelligence of the mind/body process and the extent to which sickness and aging are created by nothing more than gaps in our self-knowledge. By increasing this self-knowledge, we can master simple yet effective ways to metabolize time, and so achieve our unbounded potential. Ageless Body, Timeless Mind is a book that everyone who is interested in being alive should have.
